Chester Co DA’s “Buy a Badge” Case Against ME2 Pipe Complete Bust

Last August we told you about the politically-motivated prosecution (by the Chester County, PA District Attorney’s office) of men connected to a security firm providing off-duty constables to protect Mariner East 2 (ME2) pipeline construction sites (see Chester DA Persecution of Off-Duty Constables Guarding ME2 Pipe). Last June a Chester County Magisterial District Judge dismissed the entire case against the local head of security for Energy Transfer (builder of ME2) in what the Chester DA’s office lyingly calls a “buy a badge scheme” (see Chester DA Charges Against ME Pipe Security Chief Tossed by Judge). Since it couldn’t hurt Energy Transfer, the DA’s office decided to go after the security firm hired by Energy Transfer instead. Talk about low. After several more dismissals, the case is now almost completely resolved–with NO convictions of any kind. That is, the entire case against ET and the security guards is a bust. A waste of time and taxpayer money.
